Kindergarteners Learning to Fight Stigmas and Stereotypes Through Books
Help me give my students a true and wholesome experience with all types of marginalized groups so that together we can fight stigmas and sterotypes.
I teach a kinder dual-French immersion program. 96% of our students are of hispanic background. 95% of our school is classified as below the poverty line. I am extremely proud to be teaching Spanish-speaking students a third language- French. The dynamic of our classroom is very energetic and what really drives learning are the fun and engaging opportunities we provide for our students. This is why I am very much looking forward to continue to serve my Kindergarten French-Immersion community in all the ways that I can.
The first set of books within the collection includes informational texts about children from all around the world, providing our class with insights necessary to develop a more wholesome understanding of the world around them.
Because no one should be limited by their social-economic restrictions, to learn what the world is like beyond their immediate surroundings.
Another set of books addresses the careers of different members of our community, which would be a great tool to help inform our little kinders on what each career choice really entails. To me as a teacher, it is so important to make sure that kids grow up making well-educated decisions, especially when it comes to jobs. Additionally, there is another set of books that addresses different types of handicaps, teaching our young minds what these might mean to the individual; essentially helping the children empathize with everyone and be better citizens of the world.
